    Columbus had nothing to do with America being established... that would be the English and French.

    Better standards of living by YOUR values.

    You make an assumption about how "every" European and Native American saw their own standard of living.

    Again from your subjective point of you try to objectively view another.

    Are you implying that Native American's were more violent and had a worse standard of living than did the Europeans?
